We love Halloween and even here in the UK it is becoming a bigger and bigger thing every year! We go to a friend's house, dress up and enjoy food and fun together, opening the door to trick or treaters and handing out sweets. It is such a lovely evening and of course the children love the sweets haul that they come back with themselves!

Variations / substitutions
You can make this halloween punch for kids with whatever juice / fizzy drink you like. Try ginger ale and pineapple juice or lemon-lime soda with lime sherbet instead of the red sprinkles. Fruit juices such as cherry juice or cranberry juice would also work well. Add lime juice or lemon juice for extra flavour. You can also mix up which sweets you use and it doesn't have to be red - choose a different food colouring to use and different coloured sprinkles if you prefer.
If you want to make a green punch just use green food coloring for a green halloween drink. You can also change the red sprinkles for halloween sprinkles. Really the limit is your imagination - it is such a fun drink!
